This book was the winner of the Faulkner Foundation Award for best first novel of the year. "This will almost certainly be the most original novel published in 1963. It is a wild, macabre tale of the twentieth century and of two men." "Hailing from Long Island, Pynchon served two years in the United States Navy and earned an English degree from Cornell University. After publishing several short stories in the late 1950s and early 1960s, he began composing the novels for which he is best known: V. (1963) , The Crying of Lot 49 (1966) , Gravity's Rainbow (1973) , and Mason & Dixon (1997). Pynchon is also notoriously reclusive; very few photographs of him have ever been published, and rumors about his location and identity have circulated since the 1960s."
